Capturing to a SATA drive

I have a MBPro 2.33 and am using FCP5.1.4.

I was thinking of purchasing the 500GB LaCie d2 HD SATA2 7200 RPM.

But how would I capture from my cameras (PanaDVX100, Canon HV20) to the drive if there's no firewire? Could I capture to the SATA drive by connecting the camera to either the laptop's FW port or a FW drive connected to the laptop?

And can material from other FW drives connected to the FW port be easily copied over?

best,
elmer

you need a controller card. I would suggest this one http://macgurus.com/productpages/sata/Tempo-E34P.php

it is the SONNET TEMPO E342P Express34 card. It allows you to connect your SATA drive to your laptop. I have one and love it, although I have heard that the card from cal-digit is faster. only downside to the caldigit is that it only has one esata port and the sonnet has 2.

Yup, just don't do what I did and forget to download the driver for your respective 34slot card or you'll be looking all over trying to troubleshoot why your macbook pro doesn't recognize your brand new hot LaCie Drive..
